[ExI] Behavioral Screeners

Even with naked passengers, no luggage and behavioural screening, It's still just a matter of time before wannabe martyrs start swallowing condoms full of C4.
As with all terrorist threats, the only solution is to remove the intent. That is the hard part and any thing else is just a short term stop gap solution waiting to be circumvented.
Still, naked flights get my approval !

Radical Presbies should be happy to fly, because I envisage something 
like a neck to foot opaque white nightie in 10 or more sizes 
available to boarding passengers, plus hospital booties and long 
johns. They'll look like probationary angels boarding their heavenly 
flights. No naughty views available (except to the militant celibate 
clergy hired to keep a close eye on those changing into their flight 
garments--and no, Spike, you would not be eligible for one of these 
underpaid positions).
